  • The scenery is amazing and then it is downhill from there. The staff is unfriendly at best, they just have this cranky, I do not want to be here look on their face. This is not the first time I have v...  more »

  • Summer Trip: Alpine sleds and Gondola, with a little hiking. The scene is gorgeous, beautiful, and amazing. I cannot imagine what fall looks like. The sleds are intense and fun! Although, I would say, one time is enough... honestly, or don't ride at all. The Gondola however, with the bar/restaurant on top is worth it.
  • The resort has a strangle hold on most all of their services and charges excessively. For about the same money you can go to Colorado and enjoy a REAL mountain experience. Only until recently did they FINALLY reinvest in their resort by putting in a new gondola. They old gondola should have been in a museum 15 years ago. A good bit of their lodging is like walking in to a time capsule, beyond dated. Save your money...
  • Lutsen has the best ski runs in Midwest but cant compare to the Rockies. It is priced as if it was in the Rockies which keeps it from being over crowded. The design of the runs and lifts often makes getting to the next lift more work than it should be. They could use a few more strategically placed lifts. There are plenty of ski in and out lodging options. They have a very nice gondola that runs year round and one very nice large fast lift. It is a better resort for experienced skiers than for beginners.
  • I had low expectations for Mn skiing but Lutsen surpassed them by far! It's like a mini Tahoe with Lake Superior as the back drop! Overpriced for sure, but buy your lift tickets in advance on liftopia and save a lot.
  • Definitely one of the best ski hills in the Midwest. The place is huge with lots of variety. Excellent views of Lake Superior!
